It is believed that the Vallikode Village is cared and protected by five GODS, namely, Sreekandeswaran (Siva), Sriramaswamy, Ayyappan, Thiruvalayanat Bhagavathy and Valayapulli Bhagavathy, hence the name “Anchumurthy Thattakam”.The main Temple of Swayambhu Sivasakthi is said to be thousands of years old, as found in the Ashtamangalya Prasnam. The old records of Cochin Devaswom also make mention of this Temple as Sreekandeswara Kshethram.
The land of Vallikode (Vallikode Mannu) is believed to be property of Sri Vilwadrinathan, none other Sriramaswami of Thiruvilwamala Temple. Therefore, all festivals of these five temples should begin with seeking the blessings of Sri Vilwadrinathan.
